Modern, mindful, cost-conscious brides;

here’s how to find your dream designer wedding dress.

Our mission is to help you look good, feel good and do good with a curated selection of designer wedding gowns for a fraction of the price.

If you’ve already begun the hunt for your dream dress, you might have noticed that bridal gowns can be — let’s face it — really expensive.

Ironically, the dress you wear the least in your life might end up being the priciest piece of clothing you ever buy.

Here at the barefaced bride

we do things a little differently

The Barefaced Bride is a consignment boutique located in Kurnell, Southern Sydney. We offer off-the-rack designer sample gowns, preloved designer gowns and new ready-to-wear dresses.

Showcasing our expansive collection in-store takes the stress out of searching online for your wedding dress while saving you time and money. Perfect if you’re on a short timeline (elopement anyone?) or don’t want to wait the months it can take for your dress to arrive. 

If you’re a modern bride who is ethically eco-minded and conscious about waste or simply wanting a ready-to-wear gown on a specific price point, then you’re in the right place. 

SOMETHING TO SUIT EVERY BRIDE

We pride ourselves on offering a variety of choice with the greatest value for our brides. We understand that no two brides are the same, and thus our exclusive collection is ever-evolving.

If you’ve decided on a gown created just for you, we offer a made to order service on a selection of bespoke Australian and International designers. Each designer we’ve chosen to partner with aligns with our ethical aesthetic and quality standards, so you can be sure you’re getting the very best value.

Whether it’s a preloved wedding gown from a top bridal designers’ current collection, a one-off sample gown or a carefully curated vintage dress, we strive to give our bride the option to take home a dress that speaks to them.

a few magical things happen

No order time

1. You'll save a lot of time and money

We have an expansive collection of designer gowns, which means that you can be certain there is a size and shape you’ll fall in love with. Because our gowns are purchased as-is off-the-rack you’re guaranteed to find a steal that fits within your budget. This is perfect if you're working within a short timeframe and need to take home a gown that very same day!

Ethical Consumption

3. You’ll contribute to greater sustainability, rather than adding to wedding industry waste.

By choosing a sample, preloved or never been worn gown, you can enjoy your wedding day knowing you've helped to reduce the impact on the planet. By giving new life and love to a preloved treasure you're contributing to the eco-ethical bridal movement by minimising waste - spread that love all around!

Expert Guidance

2. You will be treated to a premium and private experience

Owner and director Melanie, is an established industry expert with intimate awareness of what you’re feeling right now because she was once in your shoes. An eco-conscious consumer and once savyy seller who sold her dress to recoup some cash from her wedding, Melanie understands how to support brides and provide priceless guidance on a style right for you.

Recoup Your costs

4. You’ll make another bride’s day by helping her recoup wedding costs.

Join the high vibe energy of brides who have come before you and make one woman’s day by helping her recoup wedding expenses. At The Barefaced Bride, each of our gowns look and feel gorgeously clean and new. There’s absolutely no downside! Also, in a few months you might actually be the bride happy to pass her gown on and get some hard-earned cash back.
